Elections: There is blog life outside London….

// 3 May 2008

As a kind of follow up to the ‘The End Of The World Has Arrived, And Its Name Is Boris’ type blogs above, would just like to point out to any non British residents reading that Thursday was also polling day in over 200 local elections, that is, wards outside of London that have nothing to do with the election for London Mayor. Whilst a certain amount of discussion happened here viz the London election, it was fairly muted and detached, whereas the the following, rather more impassioned, cry was one I heard time and time again on Friday, and it really seemed to sum up the mood in the Manchester area…

“Can’t believe the Tories have won Bury…”
